Audio/Video Quality: Deen Vs. DeArmond was presented in anamorphic widescreen as shot by director James Deen for Evil Angel. The footage itself was shot by James, Dana DeArmond (at times), and talented Nate Liquor, James sometimes setting the camera down like his peers have taken to (ie: the Raw series comes to mind) but for the most part, each scene was shot somewhat differently, one of them lacking enough light to keep the colors from being overly saturated and dark, another in a brightly lit living room where the flesh tones washed out a bit, and no specific style deployed throughout. The positive aspect of all this was that James spent more time concerned with the energy developed over the years between him and Dana, the pair among the most entertaining people you could stick together when they start hamming it up and playing off each other. Their enthusiasm never waned and while the bit rate may have waivered at times, the technical aspects looked good. James handled the modest job of editing and there was always a company watermark in the lower right corner but it was rarely noticeable. The audio components were taken from the microphone built into the cameras as best I could tell, little separation of depth of field provided though the vocals could be easily heard even when they whispered to each other. The music by “Wolfpac” grated a bit, the kind of urban hip hop that went out of style some years ago, but it was not continuous and was mixed well with the vocals.
Body of Review: James Deen emerged from a crowded pack of newcomers some years ago, his boyish looks and goofy sense of humor making him the perfect choice to star in a variety of parodies before he showed he had a hardcore side as well. Now, he directors for Evil Angel as well as serves as a popular meat puppet, his upcoming Deen Vs. DeArmond a major departure from his ongoing “7 Sins” series deploying so much artistic style that some wish he’d turn it down a few notches. In this case, Deen and DeArmond are perfectly matched for each other sexually as well as their improv skills when they ham it up, feeding off each other’s energy in a way that few in porn can do nearly so well, a lot of goofy humor used in the trailer taking advantage of their near perfect chemistry together. Joining them was Ash Hollywood and Jenna Justine but let there be no doubt about it, this was definitely a D & D show all the way. Here’s a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Ash Hollywood, a very sexy blond hotty, was up first as both Dana DeArmond (the brunette on the front cover) and James Deen (also featured on front cover), took turns with her. Dana was dressed in skimpy bikini undies and Ash had on some black booty shorts with a tank top, the opening portion of the scene using a gimmick to allow both the leads to grab the young lady to molest her. They roughed her up and pawed her simultaneously (on separate sides of the screen) until the action took turns with Dana going first. Ash gobbled her gash and Dana worked her bald beaver, a bunch of fingers stuffed in Ash’s snatch leading to the gal sitting on Dana’s face. Ash was not a passive participant here by any means though, fingering and enjoying reciprocal rough sex that included some foot fetish magic too. When James’ section came into play, he porked her with his turgid sausage and kissed her, the gal applying some hand to gland friction as she engulfed his pecker repeatedly during various oral exploits. Ash kept good eye contact on her partners and was an active rider too, her vaginal actions draining his dragon into her mouth before Dana and James compared notes in a humorous manner.
Scene Two: Dana DeArmond, this time smoking a cancer stick in her street clothing, sat beside similarly dressed and smoking James Deen, the couple bantering back and forth before engaging in a silly interview type of tryst, Dana lounging on a black leather couch before they got frisky together. He lifted her skirt to reveal her ass and she rubbed his crotch with her feet, James munching on her rug before she gave him a foot job and the two spooned to vaginally fuck. The lighting was poor here so the resolution suffered a bit, Dana kneeling to orally service him in messy fashion before she impaled herself on his boner. The vaginal and oral sex eventually led to Dana blowing him with some handjob assistance until he plastered her face and upper torso with his semen, the sperm glistening off her chest as she scooped some up to taste.
Scene Three: Jenna Justine, a tiny young cutie wearing red lingerie, was up next as Dana DeArmond helped the gal dress while James Deen recorded their activities in the expansive living room. The lighting was too plentiful here and the reflection off the large white couch rendered the flesh tones a bit washed out but Dana hammed it up just as much as the director as the ladies got frisky together. Dana rimmed the gal and James started participating more as the scene continued, the guy setting the camera down routinely to participate though much of the initial action was between the ladies as Dana explored the newcomer’s ass. Dana then sat on her face and fingered her when James came over to stuff Jenna’s mouth full of cock, Dana continuously exploring them both even before James drilled Jenna’s ass. Dana got in on the penetrative action at times too but the emphasis was on the leads pleasuring and being pleasured by Jenna, moving upstairs where they did all sorts of nasty stuff until James jerked off all over the ladies who shared his seed in POV.
Scene Four: Dana DeArmond, up last on the couch with James Deen, finished off the show by devoting herself to him in an anal romp of her own. He fingered her and sucked her erect nipples as they made out, their hands all over each other throughout the scene where he gave her as much oral as she gave him. They goofed around and continued to ham it up for the camera, James using his hands on her pussy and ass as she held her legs above her head, her own clothing tossed aside first though his joined hers in short order. He choked her and made her give him sloppy head, some nut nuzzling and taint play included between their aggressive fucking of both pussy and ass. Her makeup was smeared as they continued but she did not care in the slightest, the gal one of the most active anal riders in the jizz biz at this writing. They fucked like teenagers in heat too, their mutual chemistry always shining as the sweaty duo bumped uglies, the guy feeding her his spew to her mouth right out of fucking her ass, some of the nut going to her chest.

Summary: Deen Vs. DeArmond by director James Deen for Evil Angel had a lot of hardcore gonzo sex including anal, pushing limits, lesbian, and over the top antics that a general audience is unlikely to appreciate but it also had the kind of perverse humor one associates so much with both leads that I couldn’t help but like it more than some of their other works so I rated it as Recommended. Make no mistake though, if you are a fan of Dana or James, but especially both of them together, this should be considered a “must have” for your collections, their chemistry as solid as that showed by James when he used to work with Joanna Angel a few years back. In short, Deen Vs. DeArmond did not try to be all things to all people, relying heavily on the energy and enthusiasm both Deen and DeArmond have when working together to form a chemistry filled fuck flick that had some replay value and strokability so give it a look when it comes out later this month.
